You would think that with four more weeks of summer holidays left to enjoy, the last thing on pupil’s minds would be returning to school. But apparently the biggest search on eBay is for pencil cases.
So unless parents are getting ready for the new school term, we can only imagine that children are preparing early.
Whether you are a parent or a student, we have listed some of the best pencil cases available below:
Tinted Clear Barrel Pencil Case Assorted Colours – £2.99
It’s probably a bit too soon to be thinking about exams but just as a warning, many schools only allow clear pencil cases into the exam room. So, whilst you are buying your fancy case it’s a good idea to quickly snap up a clear one for later on.

‘Keep your paws off my case’ is something you get to say every day when you buy this one from Wolf Gang.
